Never afraid to court controversy, Jefferies' forthright and opinionated shows have sometimes divided audiences. But no one ever said being a comedian was easy, even if Jefferies makes it look that way. With five Edinburgh Fringe sell-out shows, countless TV appearances across USA, Canada, Australia and UK, and of course his own HBO hour comedy special (I Swear To God) and phenomenal critical acclaim for his live shows; Jefferies is now one of the biggest names in comedy around the globe. This is a rare chance to see our home grown comedy superstar here in Australia. Jim’s last set of shows at Sydney’s Comedy Store sold out, so get in quick to ensure you catch his show this time.

Australian born Jim Jeffries is doing Australia proud internationally. The UK based comedian is regarded as one of the fastest rising stars in the comedy world, and his brash confrontational style has made him one of the most sought after comics on the world stage. Jeffries gets away with jokes that most comedians wouldn't touch due to his ability to both charm and offend the crowd in equal measures.
In 2009 Jim Jeffries returns triumphantly to his homeland for debut solo headline appearances at The Comedy Store, and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
In 2005 Jim wowed audiences at The Montreal 'Just for Laughs' Festival where he was performing in the highly acclaimed 'Nasty Show'. Jim garnered one of the biggest press articles at the festival and was also moved above 2 of America's cult comics as neither could follow his storming performances. In 2007 he was asked back to the festival this time to do a solo week, which sold out every night.
Its not all about filth with Jim though, he is also in constant demand by numerous UK based TV shows and you can catch Jim on 'Comedy Cuts' (ITV2), 'Heaven & Earth' (BBC1), 'If.ComEddies' (ITV2), 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' (BBC2), 'The History of Offensive Humour' (Channel 4), 'Comedy Blue' (Paramount Comedy Channel UK), and even performing a clean set on 'The World Stands Up' and 'Edinburgh and Beyond' both also for the Paramount Comedy Channel.
Jeffries originally trained as an opera singer before turning to stand up. Opera would have at least been safer, his trademark confrontational style saw him punched in the head on stage at Manchester Comedy Store in 2007, and footage of the incident became a youtube hit.
